    I have been working at PLZ Aeroscience Corp full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good chance for advancement and the company is very interactive with its employees. Communication is good for the most part.

    Cons

    Good chance for advancement until you hit a certain point. Then you're kind of stuck no matter how much you learn.

    Advice to Management

    Work on offering tuition reimbursement and helping people continue to advance.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules. Managers have direction.

    Cons

    Inconsistent goals and planning. It's attempting to accomplish too much in too little time with two little guidance. Sort of a cancerous growth that's strangling it's self.

    Advice to Management

    Have long term plans more specific than 'be bigger.' Focus on development of existing resources and cutting slack or non-profitable practices.

    Pros

    Great company for opportunities and the people are easy to deal with majority of the time. The chairman of the company is also very supportive of the employees and will stand by them personally for a lot of issues that come up.

    Cons

    Executives have such little oversight of the head of HR. Andrea Osterkorn has too much control over the company as head of HR and intimidates too many people as there is no upper committee that reviews her decisions most of the time. Budgeting is also very poor as there have been purchases and improvements made without first ensuring systems, equipment and employee satisfaction were being met. As we all very well know, employees make a company what it is and when they feel under appreciated the company will fail. The company when owned by the Ferrings has superb connections with employees and made it what it is today, now the company is losing touch with Bud Ferrings visions for the workers.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest making sure there are enough personnel to support areas that need it before purchasing more companies and expanding the organization. IT and many other jobs need major help and cannot play super hero for forever. When I was there, I had been overloaded and never gotten the help I asked for. Not from HR nor my supervisor. If you see a business need, fix it. Do not wonder why people are quitting if you aren't helping them from being overworked. Hiring an extra person would cost far less than retraining three people for a position in an area that needs help and gets fed up waiting for that help. Sometimes you just have to soak up those costs and take less profit. I've been part of too many conversations about budget just to see that budget realistically focus on an executive get a bonus or not that year. Take away bonuses for management and only bring it back when there is an entire employee vote that shows job satisfaction in the workplace for their job at 90% or better and I bet that the places that need more help get it faster than you would believe.

    Pros

    Job security. Great coworkers in general

    Cons

    Employees not appreciated. Management assured me a pay decrease would be worth a full-time job offer. Simply a waste of my time. Seniority stints career advancement

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees and your job will be easier. Stick up for the people below you rather than fending for yourself. Good luck finding qualified employees who will work for base pay.

    None.
